Team Isle of Man will once again be competing in Div 2W of the Northern League. Last year we did really well but this year we want to do even better.
The Northern League also provides an ideal opportunity for our U17 athletes to compete at a level, which whilst challenging, is well within their capability and to enjoy being part of a team which has been a starting point for many of our elite athletes, many of which still compete. If you are a new U17 and would like to have a chat about the Northern League and what it offers then please get in touch.
In order to get a greater understanding of the athletes available for each trip I would ask that you complete and return a Northern League Commitment Form. I would also ask that you do this a soon as you can.
This year the matches are as follows:
Match 1 – Saturday, 5 May – Wavertree (day trip)
Match 2 – Sunday, 3 June – Leigh (1 night stop)
Match 3 – Sunday, 8 July – Blackpool (1 night stop)
Match 4 – Saturday, 4 August – Blackpool (day trip)
Once I have an understanding of the numbers travelling I will be able to provide more details regarding costs. It has however been agreed that your Club will again fund you to 50% of the total costs.
The Northern League is for FULLY PAID UP FIRST CLAIM MEMBERS of Manx Harriers, Western AC and Northern AC. If you wish to be considered then please ensure that you have paid your annual membership fees to you Club and that your Club has paid your EA fee. Checks are made and the last thing we want is to have points docked because you haven’t paid your fees!
If you are an Official and available to join us then there are two funded spaces from each Club. Please also complete the Commitment Form so I can organise who the officials will be for each match. Remember we need 1 timekeeper, 1 track official and 4 field officials one of which must be a level 2B.
If you know of anyone who would be interested in taking part then please pass this information onto them.
I would like to thank you in advance for returning your forms promptly!
